Organised by Philiminality Oxford. Convened by Julius Geißler, Laura Cleveland Andersen and Kassandra Dugi.
The Philiminality Oxford Work-in-progress Seminar for Cross-cultural Philosophy (POWSCP) seeks to offer graduate students working on liminal philosophies an opportunity to present their current work to Oxford‘s interdisciplinary graduate community. This termly seminar aims to be a place for the fruitful exchange of philosophical ideas across diverse traditions, speakers are therefore not only invited to receive feedback from an assigned graduate commentator and the audience but also encouraged to participate in a short roundtable discussion with the other speakers and commentators after the talks.
